This winter, continue #FirstFirkinFriday at the Moxie. Since space is a wee bit tighter than our backyard, the screenings will be stretched over three nights. For each of these movies, we'll be sending the Moxie a special keg to tap.

Young Frankenstein Film Summary: In this spoof of Mary Shelley’s gothic tale, the grandson of Victor Frankenstein, a neurosurgeon, has spent his life living down the legend of his grandfather, even changing the pronunciation of his name. When he discovers his grandfather’s diary, he begins to feel differently, and returns to the family castle to satisfy his curiosity by replicating his ancestor’s experiments. In the process, he creates one very unique monster.

"Young Frankenstein emerges as a reverently satirical salute to the 1930s horror film genre."
- Variety
"More about the myth of Karloff than the monster, this Mel Brooks pastiche is probably his best early film."
- Chicago Reader
